Whiling volunteering overseas a few years ago, I realized that while I was apparently willing to travel half way around the world to help others, I'd never REALLY volunteered in my own city. This realization made me want to stop letting myself be comfortable inside daily routines within a city where, after so many years, I had barely scratched the surface.
I want to meet someone where the things we do not have in common become the things we want to learn about. Being around someone who is excited about what they do for a living is intoxicating. I am very drawn to those who say what they want, pursue what they need, and are grateful for what they receive.
